So, we went bear hunting this weekend at Hope. We didn't see much at all. We did see two bears though. On the way into Hope we spotted two bears 3.5 miles east of hope on the main road. We followed one into the woods and lost it quickly and when we returned to the truck we spotted another large blacky a couple hundred yards ahead. So, we go running down the road with our rifles toward the area of the bear and dart into the mountain side of the road after the bear (here is where the issue comes around). A white ford f250 extended cab with a shell (probably later 90s or early 2000's) drove past us as we were on the road then, slammed on his breaks, threw it in reverse, started yelling at us and took down our license plate number. I didn't really care, since it was legal. So I continue to peruse this bear, I am crouched underneath a power-line train and I can see the bear coming out of the woods into the trail 100 yards ahead of me. Then I hear my friend, who is on the road yelling at me that "its time to go!!!".
So, I was pissed to say the least. Not knowing why this guy was yelling at us and also freaking my friends out enough to leave this really nice black bear to live another day.
I called fish and game and told them everything, right after it happened and spoke with 3 different people, one being a wildlife trooper. All said I was not in any violation. (was not private property or native property and was plenty of distance from the road)
So, if anyone knows a guy who drives a white late 90's early 2000 ford f-250 with a shell that lives, works or was in hope this weekend, please let me know. Would love to talk to this joker
Does anyone know why he might have been freaking out?
